I have used a Valentine One since 1995 as Mike Valentine created this Radar Detector [R/D] in 1992. It was the "thing" to have when you rode a BMW motorcycle! A must...

Recently finally comes "Valentine One Generation Two" [V1G2]

Escort has the patent on filtering GPS signals from other cars, their "blind spot monitor" [BSM] and for the V1G2 to be a complete efficient R/D comes this free app called JBV1. An app you can run on your phone in conjunction with the V1G2 which has Bluetooth enabled. I will not get into the description of the JBV1, just that it is intense! It will block BSM signals from GM cars [double beam], Mazdas, Hondas... It will alert you from LEO planes and helicopters... cameras... speed signs... weather... History of where LEO has had a strong presence up to 90 days ago... The list is very long while it can be used as a stand alone or even through your Car Play and Android Car.

998277


One thing to keep in mind as I almost started pulling my hair, the "settings out the box" are the ones recommended and then on start changing to your needs and likes...There is a complete manual coming up soon which will be 28 pages long with 4 hours of videos...

998278

998279


998280


998281


998282


At the same time I run Waze on my phone keeping JBV1 in the background unseen alerted by bogeys which in those cases JBV1 takes over the Waze screen for the duration of the alerts!

I can also have Waze on my 8.8" car screen, JBV1 on the dash and V1G2 of course running...

998283


This combination makes it the strongest and best Radar Detector until, as we are all waiting. for the "Theia" from Radensco to come out sometime next year which will be the first "artificial intelligence" R/D. Priced accordingly I am sure!

And no, you don't have to look at any screen while driving as the audio will laert you with beeps and braps and speech..

There is much more information on the Radar Detector Forum

That's an intense amount of data about LEO activity and location being provided to the consumer. I wonder if they will bristle at this and have the product's functionality altered to curb this much data being available to the public. That's what they did with Waze evidently.

I used to use Waze but have uninstalled it since they started disallowing the submission of a LEO sighting through their app while the car is in motion. It now offers nothing substantial above the functionality offered by other map and navigation programs, so it fell victim to a de-cluttering of my phone.

It is intense!!! Yet, it is a choice to use whatever you need or like out of it. For example, personally, I just use it for extra "log out" BSM signals, being in front of me to the left, the colors splashing on the screen [over Waze as it can can be set up that way] is the only settings I use. No map heat, no past bogeys, I don't even like it to go through my Android car audio leveling the music. There are many hobbyist, for lack of better word, that do use all the function. I am not in that category!

Now about Waze, that you are writing is new to me as in New Mexico we can still place the LEO on the map. I did come across an article trying to sue Waze as here

Suing Waze

You would be amazed what some members of the RDForum have on their cars! From lazer jammers to other instruments I don't even know the names!

I actually do not use the R/D in town or villages I go through as I am adamant following the speed limit. Now, the mountain roads? that is another story for another day!

Take care...
